Baby Bottle Announcement Card

Since I first saw the NEW "Bundle of Joy" and "New Arrival" Stamp Sets, I knew I HAD to make a Baby Bottle Shaped Card.

The Baby Bottle is from the Cricut Simply Charmed Cartridge cut at 6".

I used the "Milk" from the Cricut Create A Critter Cartridge cut at 6-1/2" and trimmed to fit inside the Baby Bottle.

A doube-loop bow was made using My Craft Spot's "Caribbean" Crinkle Ribbon. I centered a button twined with some "Blue Berry Blue" Trendy Twine - also available at My Craft Spot.

I used the "Welcome Little One" sentiment from the JUST RELEASED "Bundle of Joy" Stamp Set.

To give the Baby Bottle Announcement Card a more realistic look, I cut the bottle out of a Clear Plastic Sheet. Although you can't really see the "Clear Bottle", the reflection of the patterned paper lets you know its there.

The Baby Bottle Announcement Card was cut using papers from the  Bella Blvd Baby Boy - Heaven Sent Paper, I purchased from the Paper Issues Etsy Store - remember to get your 20% off discount code on the right sidebar.

The inside includes a side for all the information about the new baby. I stamped the "Milk" with the "Announcing our new Bundle of Joy", "Name, Length, Weight" sentiments from the JUST RELEASED "New Arrival" Stamp Set.

The other side has a small photo mat to include a 2"x3" wallet size photo of the new addition.

I tied some more "Blue Berry Blue" Trendy Twine - also available at My Craft Spot - around the photo mat. I also added a Tiny Tag cut using the NEW Tiny Tag Metal Dies and stamped with the solid border line stamp of the Tiny Tags1 Stamp Set. The "Its a Boy" Sentiment is from the JUST RELEASED "Bundle of Joy" Stamp Set.

Here is a quick look at the dimensional layers of the Baby Bottle Announcement Card.

I hope you have enjoyed my Baby Bottle Announcement Card. I'm your LAST stop on the My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party BLOG HOP.
